Looking for something to do with that Ground Turkey? Here are over 25 healthy turkey recipes that are sure to fit in with your meal planning!
One of my best secrets to long term weight loss is keeping a well-stocked refrigerator with healthy, versatile ingredients. Ground turkey is a perfect example: easy to find, affordable, low calorie, and high in protein – I love keeping a pound or two on hand in the refrigerator for weeknight meals.
Mild tasting on its own, it’s easy to transform into a wide variety of dishes – from Mexican tacos to Italian pasta to Chinese lettuce cups and everything in between.
To get you inspired, here are 25+ healthy ground turkey recipes!

Low Calorie Buffalo Turkey Meatballs with Skinny Ranch Dressing
All the fabulous flavors of buffalo chicken wings in these bite size, skinny meatballs. Serve on the side with my skinny ranch dressing, for dipping.

I like to divide them up and pack in pint size containers and freeze for several servings in the future.
